Should be a nice easy day at school with no finals today and a super light practice. I really hope I can sneak in a nap after that before I get started on some end-of-the-year projects due soon.<br><br>
Only 2 more days...

7 miles in 60 min on the treadmill this morning-varied incline a little but pretty boring. Also .75 mile swim-getting ready for a couple of sprint tris-never done one before! Have a great day everyone

just finished my run and wondering how the heck I'll get a comb through this hair!!!!!!! My ponytail is a fuzz ball <img alt="sad10.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad10.gif"> . I ran on the 'mill to avoid the humidity factor. Concerned about my lack of fluid intake, but only 1-2# weight loss, so the salt helped...tummy a little yuck though

I ran 14.5 easy miles this morning in a steady drizzle. The legs were a bit fatigued at various points along the way, but overall a fairly decent workout.

Fox-runr - I will have to start doing salt on mornings like this.<br><br>
5 mile lunch run - just like morning, but 15 degrees warmer and sunny - stiiiiiiicky! Saving grace was a little more breeze.

Mike are you running barefoot or what? I have never had the sweat soak through my shoes and leave prints. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif">

wow, I think today is going to be ANOTHER forced/unplanned rest day<br><br>
I am up to my googles in work/mommyhood.<br><br>
Unfortunately, this entire week will be a washout as far as fitness.<br>
If I get in two runs and one lifting session, I'll be happy.<br>
~not~<br><br><br>
bbl to post a workout if there *is* one

Alex---you probably don't have to change your clothes during a workout either!!! Some people really sweat....I think it has to do with the name Mike or something. When I lived in TX, my friend sweat so much that his shoes squeaked. The first time I heard it, I asked if he ran through a puddle, but no, his sweat ran down his leg into his shoes.<br><br>
Flounder--it's probably 10 degrees cooler on this side of town. Last night I was going to run at the high school while the kiddos swam, but I went home and decided to deal with lake flies over heat<img alt="sad10.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad10.gif"> It's the first time that I can remember going to weather.com and the "feels like" is higher than actual. It's usually the other way around. I think the salt works well on humid days. If you're sweating off more than 5#, you could probably do well by them.......take with lots of water.

Usually during any time from now through September by the end of my run I drip sweat. I don't really notice it until I get in my house and realize that I leave a trail and if I turn my head to fast arcs fly off. Mom doesn't like that. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
Super easy practice for me...8 striders up and down the football field, progressing up the first 50 and then sprint the rest.<br><br>
Nothing tomorrow except playing lots of Guitar Hero II in the hotel room. <img alt="headbang.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/headbang.gif">

5.x miles at lunch in 2 PTIs. <i>(A PTI is a podcast of Pardon the Interruption)</i>.<br><br>
2.2 lbs of sweat lost. I know this because I finally bought a scale this weekend as my mood has turned serious and I'm going to drop 15 lbs. this summer to see what kind of difference it makes in my running.<br><br>
Plus, I might be able to land a role in The Machinist II. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Ugh. Rough day for me.<br><br>
I went up the trail after work today. Minor problem, I forgot the CamelBak today. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> So I had to use hand-carried bottles (2 20oz.). Since I was doing a repeat on the miles 3-7, I was able to stash the bottles at around the mile 4 marker (which is also the mile 6 marker, the mile 8 marker and the mile 10 marker).<br><br>
To make matters worse, I have a very sore throat that I have been fighting in all day. Every time I swallow it hurts like hell.<br><br>
Not a great day for me, but I got thru it. I guess that's what matters.<br><br><b>Daily Run Report</b><br><br><b>Date:</b> 05/30/2007 <b>Time:</b> 15:30<br><b>Run Type:</b> Just A Run<br><b>Distance:</b> 14.0 miles<br><b>Total time:</b> 02:35:53.6 <b>Average Per Mile:</b> 00:10:45.8<br><b>Course:</b> OTHER COURSE<br><b>Max HR (for entire workout):</b> 179<br><b>Average HR:</b> 152<br><b>Shoes:</b> Mizuno Wave Ascend 2 - 05/2007 <b>Date Entered Service:</b> 05/08/2007 <b>Ending Mileage:</b> 76.0<br><b>Weather:</b> Sunny.

A real struggle tonight. First I have a sore throat that I am hoping is not strep throat. Second, I forgot my CamelBak today so I had to use handheld bottles.<br><br>
Since I had to use handheld bottles, and since the course is an out and back, and since I was repeating miles 3 to 7, I stashed the bottles just after the mile 4 marker.<br><br>
I stopped each time I passed the stashed bottles to get a drink, and one time had a GU. I did not take this time off, and probably added up to at least 1 full minute.<br><br>
The last 3 miles were pure hell. Thank heavens they are mainly flat.<br><br><b>Run Segments<br>

Kruss- that's pretty exciting. Do you have a specific tri in mind? I'm not a very good bike rider or swimmer. It would take a heroic effort for me to do a tri.<br><br>
5 miles on the 'mill, 51:36. Even though I wasn't outside, I sweated like a champ. Sunshine said, 'Mommy, are you stinky?" when she saw me afterward.

I'm doing the Danskin Tri in Sept and possible another one in July at the Jersey shore but I haven't officially signed up for that one yet. I've heard the Danskin is a great beginner tri. Everyone is very supportive, they have "angels" in the water to help you in case of trouble, and it's all women. Not very competitive but just what I need<img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Oh and I'm a terrible swimmer and biker but I decided to do this because it supports breast cancer research which is a cause that is very important to me.
